I get where you're going Magus, I really do, but I am venting today over frustrations with the platform. Hell, I have been venting for about a week now, but more stealthily.

It's just... I'm tired. I'm tired of the stress of supporting this platform in modern times. I need a nap.

I played James Bond: Everything or Nothing on Xbox earlier today, just to play a console game and vent.

Terrible game.

Ugg, finished the 360 demo. Not a good taste. This game has gone too far towards Gears of War. Either that or they should of put out a 'no casualties' demo to more show its true colors. Speaking of colors the graphics are quite the eye sore.

I really can't think of a single thing positive to say about the demo. Based on the demo, this game totally goes in my $10 or less only bargain bin list.

The demo has had some plaudits for the clarity of its image quality, but in actual fact the game runs at 1024x576, with just 2x multisampling anti-aliasing (MSAA).

Same internet DRM as Assassin's Creed 2. Man that gripes me to no end. I really like Splinter Cell games but I'm not getting this DRM garbage. People need to rebel and not give Ubi their money to stop this BS. I don't pirate games but crap like this makes me want to start.

and that will end with UBI not doing PC games in future. great plan

their DRM works well, for first few days there were issues caused by idiot "hackers' trying to take it down.

No it might make them not continue to use the current system and not giving them money is a good idea. It's the only idea they understand. And their DRM is not working well. Read the Ubi forums. Maybe people should work harder on not being mindless game playing idiots and speaking up.

i can bet half of those people don't even own the game, and yet they bitch about the DRM system

and you prove the point, you don't own it, yet you complain
